Generally, these are the best 'general purpose' magnifiers; they are larger than the tiny super-powerful loupes used for hallmarks, gemstones, coins and stamps; they are pocket-size unlike most readers for books and newspapers; they are 'general purpose'; they are for reading text (be it the small print on a form or a tin in a supermarket), marks (e.g. on furniture or porcelain), larger insects and plants (spiders and leaves)...anything.
Specifically, this is the cheapest.
